Applying for Audition Rotations

Photo by
An audition rotation is a 2-4 week rotation that is completed in the first part of 4th year with a residency program you want to apply to.  Think of it is an extended interview because they give students an opportunity to get to know a residency program and for the program to get to know them.  Audition rotations are a funny thing because for some programs they are so important they are required and for others they don't even offer them.  Each specialty and program is going to be different.
